Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany’s weird superhero sitcom was a huge hit for Marvel as the studio made its mark on the small screen after a decade of dominating the big screen. With the success, you would think a second season would be on its way. A known leaker on Reddit, user noneofyourdizness, has posted a long list of things about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one of which is the possibility of WandaVision Season 2. Moving forward, as we dive into these details, get a fist full of salt as there are substantial reasons this is false, but let’s dig into it anyway.
Point number 13 is where he gets into the rumors about WandaVision Season 2. The positivity from fans and critics has generated discussions on a new story. Pitches are apparently being made about what could be another go at the series—one of which is how to bring back White Vision. To keep the comedic style, it would be him creating a synthetic family to find his humanity much like the acclaimed comic book limited series by Tom King. If this happened, then the villains would be Grim Reaper and Wonder Man.
The other plot is something that even the leaker points out as unlikely for WandaVision Season 2. It would involve bringing back Ultron. The supposed reasoning is that it would showcase what a hallow iteration of Vision looks like when dealing with the iconic villain. Unlike the thoughtful counterpart that fans got to know since Avengers: Age of Ultron, it would be a grim look at the character.
The user posted a total of 15 points about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When it comes to TV outside of WandaVision Season 2, they mentioned how the studio is in the early stages of planning out mutant TV shows. Another points to the origin of the upcoming She-Hulk series. Apparently, the plan was to have a standalone movie with Hulk as the lead, but with the Fox acquisition, ideas shifted over to introducing Bruce Banner’s cousin, a lawyer who gains his powers.
The main reason why this is all untrue, at least for WandaVision season 2, is that the Scarlet Witch herself shut down the idea. On an episode of Variety’s Actors on Actors series, a show in which two actors interview each other, Elizabeth Olsen was joined by The Flight Attendant‘s Kaley Cuoco to talk about their work. When Olsen asked a question about Cuoco’s second season of her HBO show, the actress returned the question about the Marvel show. Olsen denied it was happening as it was “definitely a limited series.” But when pressed, she did admit that “with Marvel, you can never say no.”
While being the lead, she still never knows what Marvel has up its sleeve. Kevin Feige could always roll in and announce it down the road, but for now, the potential season 2 of WandaVision is seemingly dead. That said, the studio has plenty lined up. Currently, Loki is appearing every Wednesday for the next few weeks as the second episode airs this week. For later this year, we still have What If…? sometime this summer, and Hawkeye and Ms. Marvel are set for the fall or winter.
